it is my honor to introduce the president of the united states, barack obama. [applause] >> all right. thank you, monica. >> thanks for everybody out there who cares deeply about this issue. monica's story is important because for all the day-to-day fights here in washington around the affordable care act, it's stories like hers why we took on this fight in the first place. for too long, working families were more vulnerable to the anxieties of today's economy than a broken health care system. we took up the fight because we believe that in america, nobody should have to worry about going broke just because somebody in their family or they got sick. we believe that nobody should have to choose between putting food on their kid's table or taking them to see a doctor. we believe we are a better country than a country where we allow, every day, 14,000 americans to lose their health care coverage or where tens of thousands of americans die because they didn't have health care, or where out of pocket costs drove people into poverty. we thought we were better than that and that's why we too
. it knows all and tells all right here next. ♪ ♪ lou: a lot going on. the obama administration moving closer to finalizing a controversial rule that would gi green energy company's 30- year permits to kill bald and golden eagles in the country without penalty. hundreds of thousands of birds are not killed every year after flying into large wind turbine blades and other obstaes. the industry claims only 2 percent of the eagles are killed by those wind turbines. a federal study recently found wind farms killed at least 85 gold nine bald eagles from 1997 until 2012. why am i telling you about this? because i care about this a lot. this angers me to think about what we're doing in this country. the white house is now reportedly completing a review of the rule. final details are not known. the rule could still be tweaked, as they put it, but significant changeare rare at this stage in the process. so call your congressman. call your senator, call the president. senator elizabeth warren says she does not want to be president, stepping out of llary clinton's way for a run possibly in 2016. declarin
obama care, which i'm sure that you cover a lot on your show, it causes the american people to not be comfortable with the leadership that we have right now. >> there's also a growing sense of isolation that we're seeing from this poll and when you were mentioning obama care and other domestic issues do you think the problems of a tough economy here at home is one reason why americans are fed up with the lack of real progress about solving our domestic challenges? is that why people are turning away from supporting major foreign policy move right now? simple i think that's part of it. i think the bigger thing is the disappointment and the deception on the part of this president as well as the administration and the democrat leaders, quite frankly, in washington, d.c. and particularly in one of the studies that was a harvard institute of politics study, also, that showed that even millenials have done a 180-degree flip-flop. a majority of millenials voted for president obama and now a majority of millenials do not like obama care and what's also scary is that they believe he
the challenge a lot of these senate democrats are facing right now, particularly in those red states, is this unpopularity with obama care and with so many of these other divisive issues that the president may support and may not be popular in their home states. they're the ones republicans are targeting directly right now. as evidenced there, they're going to have to stand up and do whatever they can to finesse their way through the 2014 election. >> my thanks to you, peter and chris chris, for having my back today. >> we're in the bull pen. >> and speaking of health care, the obama administration is trying to highlight the fixes within the enrollment site, but insurance company leaders are still voicing concerns of whether the right information is ending up with providers. speaking of people who need health care right now, example one. first of all, is the -- are the fixes that we've seen, more enrollments, a better experience for people signing on, is that enough? are you still worried about what's going to happen january 1st when people try to, you know, believe that they have si
's not a news flash. to show no historical memory, elevate for partisan purposes the obama administration of the worst lying in presidential history is ignorant, it's offensive talking down to the american people. second thing is this, for republicans right now, if they're trying to win a republican primary, they're rewarded for being responsible. you throw red meat. saying things like they are taking lying to a whole new level or saying an iran deal is distracting from obama care. what's sad is he thinks they're politically important to protect his right flank in a primary. >> ironically, they'll hurt him in the primary. >> i don't you think? >> the more you whip up the anger on the fringe of that party the more it's going to work against cornyn. he's seen as a moderate, somebody who doesn't embrace the tea party values to their satisfaction. the more he makes that the level of play, the more it will hurt him. >> he's trying to inoculate himself, see, i can be just as inflammatory as you, as unhinged as you, i am one of you. at that point -- >> republicans have been doing this for all of
